Erik Cole is one of the fastest skaters in the NHL and he showed off that speed on Wednesday as he flew down the ice to bang a goal home. He was so fast down the ice there wasn't anyone there to celebrate his goal with right away so he did the next best thing: high-five the ref.
I love it!

Erik Cole scored a goal on Wednesday night for the Ottowa Senators and couldn’t find any of his teammates to celebrate with. So what did Cole do? He found an outstretched arm of an 18-year veteran official Greg Kimmerly and gave him a high five. Pretty hilarious and you can only imagine what the ref was thinking after it happened.
“He was the only one there, and I had...
I can confidently say that I’ve never seen this happen before, but it was certainly entertaining. In the Canadiens/Senators game tonight, Erik Cole scored the first goal of the game on Sens backup goalie Ben Bishop and then proceeded to high-five referee Greg Kimmerly. It didn’t seem like Kimmerly was exactly planning for the high-five, more like signaling that it was a good...
I have decided to tackle a dangerous task today.
That task is trying to explain the logic of the Montreal Canadiens' coaching staff regarding Scott Gomez's presence in the lineup.
As best as I can remember, since Gomez arrived in Montreal, he has never once been a healthy scratch.
Naturally, this has infuriated more than a few fans...
As the Canadiens enter what is to be their last full month of play, they have displayed some reasonably impressive hockey, posting a 4-2-1 record.
While it's unfortunate that the Canadiens recent play is no doubt too little too late, it is at least an indication that the Habs are in fact better than they've shown thus far.
Lack of Offensive Depth
So far, the Habs...
MONTREAL (March 14, 2012) – The Montreal Canadiens announced today that defenseman Frédéric St-Denis has been recalled from the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs.
The 26-year old defenseman recorded 28 points (3 goals and 25 assists) in 52 games with the Bulldogs thus far this season. St-Denis scored two of his goals on the powerplay and added 101 shots on goal.
Assigned to the Bulldogs...
Morning puck fans!
I will be brief in my commentary this A.M. In fact, I will just pose one quick question.
Weren't you all terrified when Andrei Markov dropped to the ice after getting a puck to the face?
I was. I was thinking 'oh no, not again'
Thankfully, he was alright and returned to the game. Hopefully, that good fortune can continue for the duration...
As expected, the Canadiens Masterton nominee this season is Max Pacioretty. The award is given to the player "who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey".
If coming back from a broken neck and severe concussion to score 30 goals doesn't fit the bill, I don't know what does (pardon the pun).
As for sportsmanship...
David Desharnais scored in regulation and in a shootout, lifting the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.
Desharnais had the only goal in the shootout, and Canadiens goalie Carey Price stopped all three Ottawa attempts.
Erik Cole also scored for Montreal (28-32-11), 3-0-1 in its last four games. The Canadiens are 3-0-1 against the Senators...
Watch Erik Cole after he scored the goal tonight.
I don't know if this is common practice in Montreal, but it happened Wednesday night with Erik Cole and this lucky official. I have to assume it is though, as it is on video, and BMR French Canadian expert Loser Domi is on vacation
Ottawa's Erik Karlsson pins Montreal Canadien David Desharnais horizontally on the boards before gently placing him back on his skates. Yeah David Desharnais only weighs 177 pounds but,...

The Montreal Canadiens tend to have little trouble with the New York Islanders.
Lately, most opponents have enjoyed facing the Islanders - especially when hosting them.
The Canadiens look to continue their dominance of last-place New York when they conclude the season series Saturday night at the Bell Centre.
Montreal (28-32-12) is 14-2-4 over its last 20 meetings with the Islanders...
Currently seventh in the Eastern Conference, the Ottawa Senators have held their own against most teams in the league.
The Montreal Canadiens, however, have surprisingly had their number.
Ottawa tries to avoid a fourth loss in five meetings with Montreal this season as the teams conclude a home-and-home set Friday night at Scotiabank Place.
While most teams in the Senators'...
